Artist: Circle of Funk feat. Lifford Shillingford
Title: In Love
Label: Slapped Up Soul Records
Genre: Soulful House
Having impressed us with their soulful House EP ‘Give It to Me’; the Circle Of Funk quartet – Lee Robinson, Andy Caulfield, Paul Stephenson and BlackJack bring out yet another soulfully charged collaboration with Lifford Shillingford.
Lifford has made a name for himself appearing on Artful Dodger’s huge ‘Please Don’t Turn Me On’ and on Phil Asher’s Restless Soul label with producers ‘Wipe The Needle’.
This time around he puts an equal measure of style, soul and passion as he sings openly about being ‘IN LOVE’ which happens to be the title of the track.
The Original Mix is more of a deeper affair whilst Flex’s 90’s mix takes you back into the days of the Steve Silk Hurley Style whilst the Soulful Mix is more on a more of a jazzy side.
Circle of Funk are all originally from Bristol, UK. They got their break in House music in 2001 playing for the city’s pioneering DJ Deli G. Their track ‘Feelin’ It’ which made to #7 in the official Urban Chart, lead to a tour with live PA’s from Lifford.
